Do we write drivers?

No, we don’t. We just collect drivers from the hardware company and manufacturers.

Hardware company will provide the drivers to the manufacturers. After sometimes when the normal support for that hardware has ended, the hardware company will stop providing driver update for that hardware. Some manufacturers still maintain the driver update for their hardware. For example, I had an old Pentium D computer with an Intel brand motherboard that I installed 7 on (several years ago). Intel did not make a driver available for the MEI for that chipset for Windows 7 officially. However, I did find another manufacturer did (I think it was Gateway computers). I was able to use that driver.

In this case, if you’re finding XP drivers for your stuff that your manufacturer doesn’t have available for download, the drivers are probably from another manufacturer.

As one hardware can be distributed by manufacturers, they might be compatible with each other. DriverIdentifier analyze the drivers it collect from the manufacturer websites, then it will compare your driver with its database. If DriverIdentifier see a compatible, it will show you the link to download.

That makes DriverIdentifier a big difference with other Driver Update software. We do not alter the drivers, we show you the option to download the right drivers from the manufacturer.

Some nice words from our client

Hi driveridentifier-Team,

I just want to thank you. I have a HP x2 Transformer. I upgraded on Windows 10 and found my Device Manager yelling around with yellow exclamation marks. I contacted HP support for the missing drivers and got the answer “please roll back to Winwos 8, we don’t support Windows 10 on that device” (the notebook is 16 months old). So I tried around and found an article about your page. I used it to find out some missing drivers. But then 3 different drivers you found did not work. I was sad but tried further and further. Then I found out the right one and with one driver all 5 different missing devices were found (not unimportant – the missing devices were the Intel Thermal Frameworks!). So in the end, I can bother HP with the info, that your page safed my notebook meanwhile theirs technicians were not able to google the correct drivers 🙂

Thank you very much!
